|My goal is to make a webapp that makes a middle class income. It does not have to be Bay Area middle class, but say 100k a year.|
What is the real probability this can happen? Or is it a fool's errand?
I'm from a non-software field in my 30's, but I'm tired of grinding it out with a salary that can barely cover the expenses. I'd like to work remotely and live somewhere more affordable.
I don't expect anything to happen right away, but over the next 5 years. Because I don't see myself saving my way to retirement, owning a business where you control your time is the only end game I can see.
I like building apps and take pride in my work, so it seems like a good avenue for me.
